    What the OP is likely concerned about is the collection of personal data and that's not taking place. It's only use telemetry.

    I am not a fan of Windows 10 (not just the privacy thing, but other reasons), I like 7 and 8 (with a 3rd party menu).

    However, if you upgrade you can try it for awhile (1 month) before the upgrade is permanent. It has a restore to previous version option available and works without a hitch. If you go beyond the 1 month then you will have to reinstall your old Windows 7, via disk or OEM disks, if I am not mistaken.

    Not really true, you could make a complete image backup, before upgrading to Windows 10, then go back to your old OS anytime you want.

    I would not use Windows to make that image backup thou. Use a free program like Macrium Reflect to make your complete image backup.

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
